  1. Press and hold the power button *
  2. Release when you hear the beep and/or the display turns off 

(*) NOTE If you continue to hold the power button for five more seconds, Scorbly will enter Advanced Settings Mode. More on this later.

    Upon power up, Scorbly will then test the battery power and briefly display the battery power level (1 – 10). Power level 1 the lowest while levels 9-10 is fully charged.

    After displaying the battery power level, Scorbly will begin a new game. You can now use the remote control to change the score.

    Charge the Battery

    The scoreboard is rechargeable through a USB Type-C connector using a certified USB power source. A USB wall adapter and charge cable are included.

    To charge the scoreboard, turn off the scoreboard and connect the USB power source.

    The charger status lights are located on the display unit just above the power switch. The following table describes the status based on the various LED states.

    Setting the Score Format

    Scorbly Plus is initially set-up to play a standard Tennis score format. You will need to change the settings if you want another sport and/or score format. Scorbly will remember these settings and you will never need to update them unless you want to again change the sport and or score format.

    The score format settings and how to change them are explained in the Advanced Settings section below.

    Keeping Score with the Remote Control

    The remote control is ready to use out of the box. Just press a button to update the score. Scorbly includes a belt clip with retractable cord that can be attached to the remote control. This makes it easy for a player to quickly update the score while on the court.

    TEAM A should be the team that serves first at the beginning of the MATCH.

    The remote control has 4 buttons labeled A, B, C and D.

    A: press when team A wins the serve/rally *
    B: press when team B wins the serve/rally *
    C: rewind through the saved scores
    D: return forward though the scores

    (*) NOTE for games with "side-out" scoring (i.e. Pickleball and 15pt Beach Volleyball): Press A or B once after each serve/rally, even if no point is awarded. For example, if Team A misses a serve, press button "B". Scorbly will determine if a point is awarded or if there is a change in server possession. 

    Click the play button on the demonstration videos below to see how to keep score and track who serves next with Scorbly.

    How to Score with Scorbly Volleyball

    Scorbly Volleyball works like other Scorbly Products. See the "Keeping Score" and "Replay / Correct Score" demonstration videos for Scorbly Tennis to see how it works. 

    Which Team Serves Next?

    The first team to serve in the match should be assigned to Team A  (the top score). Scorbly will automatically determine which team is serving based on standard server rotation rules for each sport.

    For Scorbly Tennis: The serve will rotate after each game (and during tiebreaks). View the "Who Serves Next" demonstration video to see how Scorbly can tell you who's serving next. This can be helpful when starting a new set.

    For Scorbly Volleyball: During a set, the serve will rotate between teams when the serving team loses a point. At the beginning of the next set, the team that did not serve first in the previous set, will serve first

    For Scorbly Pickleball: During a game, Scorbly displays which player is serving next. At the beginning of the next game in a match, the team that won the previous game will serve first.

    Mounting the Scoreboard

    On the center back of the scoreboard there is a ¼” mounting point that can attach to any standard camera mounting gear. A thumbscrew is included for hanging the scoreboard on a court fence. The single attach point allows you to hang between seams of wind screens found on many court fences. Screw the thumbscrew into the 1/4" mounting point and then hang the scoreboard by guiding the thumbscrew head through a link of the fence.

    There are also a vast array of other mounting options available on many online stores. Inexpensive tri-pods or fence post clamps provide excellent alternatives if fence mounting is not an option.
